Am-Tran and TSA

Am-Tran is one of the few San Francisco courier service providers in the Bay Area that employs drivers with TSA (Transportation Security Administration) certification. This TSA certification ensures that drivers act with a high level of professionalism. Other qualifications are simply inadequate in comparison to TSA and it shows. Furthermore, Am-Tran’s TSA certified delivery drivers are qualified to transport, pickup and deliver shipments to and from Airports. This certification assures you that all cargo is safe and in excellent care. To take that one step further, shipments are completely trackable during the delivery process. This means never having to wonder where your shipment is or worrying about it being lost. Tracking a shipment is extremely easy.


In the past, Am-Tran only offered ground delivery. However, our transport services have recently changed to include ocean and air transport. This gives customers even more options than the many that Am-Tran already provided. Also, shipments can be sent anywhere in the world without problem. Am-Tran even has their very own Bay area warehouse that allows our customers to have items stored temporarily until they decide they want them to be shipped. This can help eliminate huge costs for a business that needs to have storage for their products. After all, overhead of storing items can get quite pricey. It also is much more convenient for a business that has other things to worry about. Let Am-Tran worry about it so you have more time for other more important things. You’re in good hands with Am-Tran!

If this describes even a mere a portion of your business, look into the advantages of Am Tran’s scheduled San Francisco delivery service. This service is perfect for a company that needs to have mail runs completed, bank deliveries made or regular client drop offs made.

When you have a scheduled delivery service, we will consider your deliveries and attempt to fit them into a regular route that we are running with our fleet. So, why is this an advantage to you? Well, when we can fit your delivery into an existing route, it ends up costing us less money to make your delivery! In turn, we pass this savings along to you and get your daily deliveries made at a rate less than what you would pay for the same delivery on a non-scheduled service.

Our focus is on the customer’s needs, so you don’t need to worry about trying to adjust your schedule to fit within some preexisting route. Instead, just tell us what you need.

Here at Am-Tran, we’re happy to announce a new San Francisco delivery service that we think is going to help our customers save even more money on their deliveries. We call them our new “Super Specials,” and hope that everyone thinks they’re as great as we do.


What’s happening with these San Francisco delivery Super Specials?  Well, at Am-Tran, we are going to be routing all of our daily scheduled work in advance of the actual shipments. Then, we’re going to send out an email to our Super Special customers. In that email, customers will be notified of the upcoming opportunities to take advantage of some great savings. Customers will be told a specific time frame for their deliveries, and if they can fit their shipments within that time frame, they will receive a significant discount for doing so.


We know that moving around the time frame of a delivery can be an inconvenience for a customer; so we wanted to make sure that the savings were worth it. That is why customers which take advantage of a Super Special are going to have the opportunity to save as high as 50% off the standard pricing on a shipment. We hope that, combined with the history of service provided by Am-Tran, this should be enough motivation to convince people to try the new service.

Despite that, we thought we’d go one step further in influencing people to try this new service.  Let us know that you’re interested in the program, and you’ll get a $5.00 gift card once you sign up.   


Please email unna@am-tran.com if you would like to sign up for these Super Specials!
